“The Greatest Thing Jesus Didn’t Do” – Homily by Fr. Cristino

Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (Lk. 3: 15-16; 21-22 & John 14: 12) “The Greatest Thing Jesus Didn’t Do” 

PDF Version

*A Note: I acknowledge in John 3 reference is made to Jesus and the disciples baptizing in the same region as John the Baptist. In chapter 4, the evangelist specifically notes on this occasion that it was not Jesus but only the disciples who were baptizing. At any rate, if Jesus performed a ritual of baptism, it was not the one we perform in the Church since the day of Pentecost.
